    To be honest, I thought Stroma was just for people in Scotland. If id have known they were for us aswell, I may have looked into them. I think there abit cheaper than the other three and as you say, its blinking expensive. What can/cant you do if you register with Stroma? Are they the same as Elecsa, Napit etc, only cheaper?

    There exactly same I think, just not known as much? Just hoping I don't lose work over it due to them not being known.

    But your already loosing work due to the 5ww doing it for min wage. At least with Stroma your not paying as much as the other scams. Ive been with Elecsa for just over a year and Ive only been asked once if I was registered and it went something like, "so, are you part thingy qualified??", after taking 10 min to explain that part thingy is not a qualification, its a building reg, I am now just gonna say "yeah" and crack on.lol. So, I suppose, as long as you can notify your work, then you shouldnt loose work coz of it.

    Wish I had known about them a few months ago before I renewed with Elecsa!!! If we must be registered with a scam, it may aswell be with the cheapest one.lol

    Lol. That's all the government seem to do take as much off the working man and give to the rich. They should be just one registration body and free

    afaik, they same as the others but cheaper. you notify through them the same. the only drawback is if you tender for work with, say, councils who insist in niceic.

    5 ww stealing all your work, least its not all the polish immigrants getting the blame nowadays

    if your struggling to find £400 per year (£7 per week), and sitting at home for 3 weeks at a time with no work, then you need to rip up your current business plan and have a rethink

    theres a big hint in the part 'sitting at home' with no work, and de-valuing your image by dropping napit to save a few quid is not gonna help in the long term, most insurance companies now recognise napit eicrs they wont with stroma they dont even cover eicrs in their scope

    Assuming your own prices are reasonable value then, if you are really losing work to people trained in a few weeks undercutting you, then you either have......

    A, the wrong type of customers

    B, the wrong image, attitude and/or approach to pricing for work

    C, unable to offer anything more that a quick course installer(in which case crack on and join stroma)

    When I do EICRs I don't involve anyone else expect my paper, my pen, and my qualifications....? Being in a scam is irrelevant if you are doing inspctions. Because its a report, not notifiable work. Only other requirement is PI insurance.

    think you've been led down a path there.
